Detailer near Ellicott City, MD.

My Jet Black 335xi needs help !!!!

Swirls everywhere, plus some minor scratches. Desperately seeking a good detailer in the area that could help bring her back to her prime again.

Here is the picture, we can see swirl all over the rear (reflexing the light).



Help !!!!

Those look like holograms to me.... put there by somebody "detailing" it. Using a dual action / random orbital instead of straight rotary polisher on finishing stages should take care of that..... assuming correct pads and coumpounds etc.etc..... after that you shouldnt see anything reflexing

Will keep that in mind. When I bought it used last year, looks like the dealer did a massive cover up job on the scratches that wore off in 6 months .
